CA State Senator planned on spending nearly $2,500,000 (2.5 million) on fully automatic weapons and shoulder fired missiles — to be purchased from a Philippine-based terror organization, and subsequently supplied to local gangs.
im Fuller is a retired electrician. He spent years wiring, welding and learning the high art of attention to detail in his craft. But for years he dreamed of a different line of work; he wanted to open up a company to build and sell reliable firearms. And in 2007, he and his wife Karen did just that.
“In my lifetime, we’ve gone from seeing people have large, nice walnut cases where they displayed their firearms; it was a status symbol,” Fuller, the president of Rifle Dynamics, told TheBlaze. “Nowadays people have to hide them in a locked case under the bed.”
Fuller has a passion for weapons, but he especially longs to see people learn to care for and develop a personal connection with their firearms. So in addition to teaching classes on rifle safety and familiarity in Las Vegas, he decided to offer classes where people can learn to build their own weapons.
“It is absolutely legal and possible to buy all the items you need to build your own rifle at home,” Fuller said. He’s right, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives states on its website, “per provisions of the Gun Control Act (GCA) of 1968, 18 U.S.C. Chapter 44, an unlicensed individual may make a “firearm” as defined in the GCA for his own personal use, but not for sale or distribution.”
Granted, you could look it all up online, order the parts yourself and take on the task of building a rifle in your basement. But if you want to build an AK-47 that will actually operate safely and reliably, you may want to hire a professional.
